Have stayed hear for the last 4 years on our annual club ride while riding from Bright to the Blue Duck, great place to split the ride over two days. Nice pub with good meals and accommodation is basic with no power points or T.V. To watch but sitting on the verandah with a nice cold beer chatting with your mates sounds a lot more fun to me, beautiful area and camping grounds near buy and great views are to be had driving up the back way to Falls Creek.

We enjoyed our time here for a few days, we used to come here when the old owners had this place so it's a bit hard to make a review without comparing the the different occasions.

We stayed in an upgraded cabin which was comfortable, clean and easy to live with, albeit no power to charge our appliances......a pain! but one is in the middle of no where so don't expect the modern comforts you'll get in town.

The food is good ...not great - but I'm sure they are looking into it.......if not they should be.

The wine list is terrible I know they want to promote local wineries, but please sell some wine that one can drink!

All in all a good experience and a worth while overnight stay

Well worth the journey from the QT! We went for lunch and came back for dinner the same night. The food was hearty, homely, and interesting. The kids meals wonderful, my 3 yo ate every last mouthful. Nice wine list with local selection and coffee was perfection. Staff were all very friendly, so three blue ducks got a thumbs up from us as we had nothing to complain about.

Just spent the weekend at 'the Blue Duck'. What a great place to unwind. Drinks and dinner Friday night on arrival. Prompt and friendly service. Spent the morning horse riding at Packers, just a short drive up the road, and the afternoon on the river with a kayak. Then back to the Pub for drinks and dinner again. All the visitors were happy to mix and get to know each other- the atmosphere was very friendly. Meals were great and not overpriced at all. Loved not having a television and mobile reception. Great to see Gapsted Wines in the bar. Highly recommend the Duck for a short break.

Recently my partner and I visited the Blue Duck Inn. We stayed for one night. On arrival we were greeted with the most friendliest of people who bent over backwards for us.
The room was beautiful very modern however mains power was not available. We had the basics, being lighting and gas cooking. There was no TV or radio or any modern day gadgets so we were left to do the good old day things of the past. We sat by the river, we talked more, we read and spoke with other guests. The peace and quiet was so tranquil. Phones and lap tops could be charged at reception if required.
There was a wood heater that kept us so warm that we had to have a window open.
Dinner was great and again we were greeted with fabulous staff who couldn't do enough to make us welcome and our visit memorable.
I recommend that if you are looking for a weekend away from it all then Blue Duck is the place to go.
